I have not written a blog recently, and this one will be unusually short. Truth is, after a decade fighting illness I have finally lost my fight, my energy and my hope that I will have my "better day". It is a bitter pill to swallow, acceptance, and not a very cheery or inspirational one either!
This year since the ball in 2016 I have been more unwell than I have ever been in the past, I have struggled and reached new depths that I never thought I would have to overcome. However. I am probably either stupid or stubborn but there is NO WAY Endometriosis is going to stop me from driving the great big bus , namely The Primrose Ball.
This years theme, suggested by the new mummy Rosalind, is a Masquerade Ball. I love the idea of wearing masks as the symbology is quite apt, living with chronic illness and pain can often mean we wear a mask everyday pretending to be well, happy, coping and unaffected by the illness within.
So lets celebrate our masks, and take them off too, because what's underneath is both beautiful and brave.
I am looking forward to an amazing evening, and sharing it with some amazing people.
